Ingonish Chalets
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 August 2017

We checked into the Chalets and they knew we were traveling with a dog and yet even though I had booked well in advance they put us at the chalet closest to the road.
The location is good on the Cape Breton Highway but it is a busy highway. Lots of bikers kept roaring past our Chalet and kicking up dust.
The manager was a very helpful person however.
I wouldn't recommend staying there.

Room Tip: away from the highway

This is a good choice for an affordable lodging option in Ingonish. We stayed in the motel section for one night on our way around the Cabot Trail. The room had a cabin feel with everything we needed. There is a wooded trail to the beach for guests.

we chose this location because they accommodated us with our puppy. The cabin was clean, bed comfy, staff friendly. The WIFI was weak but it really help us disconnect. its a good place for a quiet stay if you are a nature lover seeking to connect with nature, enjoy a good meal in restaurants nearby. We were satisfied with everything, the only downside was the fact that everything closed early. We are planning a getaway in the fall, we LOVED IT!

Ingonish is a great base for exploring Cape Breton but the chalet we stayed in was not terribly comfortable. The mattresses were incredibly soft and there weren't enough places to sit in the common area. There is a short path to the beach which is nice.
